> Do you get good OpenGL GPU acceleration on OpenSolaris? Which GPU and driver combination?

Solaris is still a supported platform for the NVidia blob:

Don't know if it works with OpenSolaris, or just the Oracle Solaris, and can't vouch for its performance, but I'd bet it does pretty well on the Solaris systems it is supported on.

Yeah, took about an hour in the Gimp on a Thinkpad. I'm not even good with Gimp. I'm biased, but I think it looks nice even today. The idea was that I would push to box-look and then re-download whenever I re-formatted. Glad to see somebody else has used the theme.

Ouch...I started buying funky ergo keyboards because I started developing some serious repetitive injury pain from those sun keyboards.

And yes, I've always been able to configure everything I need from the GUI.

Having run olvwm for some years at work, I still think windowmaker is the better window manager.

I loved the rounded buttons and especially the scrollbar controls that were part of the openlook widget set.

I really despised motif...
